The Lion Roars From Zion

Today we start our journey through the book of Amos. I think your going to be surprised at some of the things we are going to find here.

Let’s start with a little bit of history about Amos. The name Amos means burden bearer. He was from a small town named Tekoa, which was about 10 miles from Jerusalem. He earned a living by tending flocks and working in the fig groves. We don’t know if he owned the flocks or groves or if he was a hired hand. However, we do know that he was a skillful word smith and had a vast knowledge of history.
